Remarkable that more than 50 years on, Hancock's comedy still holds up so well (thanks in no small measure to Galton & Simpson's scripts and the fine company of familiar favourites he surrounded himself with). It was almost like a repertory company of the air, with the same actors appearing over and over in a range of parts. How tragic that he grew to believe the hype that surrounded him, turned his back on all those who supported him and died alone and far from home, his careeer in tatters.

Glad to see this uploaded
In this silly and fun episode of the British TV hit, a comedian tries to get a knighthood by becoming a stage actor. However, all the threatres think his versions of Shakespeare's plays, doing the lead characters as if they were Pirates, are utterly silly! A slightly risque scene that has little to do with the plot is random and unexpected, and completely harmless.
Overall, I'd recommend this to classic TV fans, and yes, you won't see the ending coming!
